Watch your own unique short film from Winnipeg’s Guy Maddin
Guy Maddin is a Canadian filmmaking icon, known for films like The Heart of the World and The Saddest Music in the World, as well as his experimental and art films often shot in black and white and sometimes silent.
Seances had Maddin shooting scenes that he imagines might have come from silent films that we know once existed but have been lost. The online experience is a massive shuffle text, taking snippets from 24 short films that were shot in Paris and Montreal.
Maddin had some notable collaborators, including Geraldine Chaplin, Charlotte Rampling, and Udo Kier.
When you visit the website, an algorithm shuffles words to create a title and description of films, and when you see something that intrigues you, you can trigger the viewing.
The shorts you view range in length from about ten to twenty minutes. Two I got were, “Everywhere the Plummets Disappear, an 18-minute archetypal noir-inflected proto-sonnet,” and “Camille’s Three, an 18-minute hypno-abysmal glabro-phrenological proto-sonnet”.
The films mix in title cards and found footage with the Maddin-directed footage, and everything’s given the kind of stuttering, affected look that identifies those old celluloid productions.
With the number of scenes available to shuffle, there could be billions of films that can be created.
